  • Food Processor

Ingredients

  • 1 medium onion quarted
  • 3 full large heads of garlic peeled (about a cup)
  • 1/2 cup of olive oil

Instructions

  • Add all the ingredients to a blender, or food processor and pulse a few times, until you reach a chunky paste consistency.
  • Store in mason jars for consumptions within 5 days. You can also fill each little compartment of a silicone ice tray, with about a tablespoon of sofrito each. Then, place it in a ziplock bag and freeze for up to 3 months. No need to defrost the little frozen "sofrito bombs". Just add them frozen to the pan and they will "melt".

Bom Apetite!!

    Notes

    The Brazilian Sofrito can be stored in mason jars for consumptions within 5 days.
    Brazilian Sofrito can also be frozen for up to 3 months. Just fill each little compartment of a silicone ice tray with about a tablespoon of sofrito in each. Then, place the ice tray in a ziplock bag and freeze. No need to defrost the little frozen "sofrito bombs". Just add them frozen to the pan and they will "melt" right in there!
